The 3 founders met up and brainstormed on the business proposal by end of 2011, in mere weeks before the Feed-in-Tariff policy was launched in Malaysia. Seizing this opportunity, they intended to make full use of the chance to realize their dream of revolutionizing the energy industry.
The first company Leaf Energy, which is the first solar consultancy firm in Malaysia, was established on the tenth of January 2012. With sheer determination and a unique business model in the industry, the team managed to not only secure several iconic projects in hand, but also brought impact to the industry through streamlined solar project financing facilitations and successfully delivered these projects to completion.
+SOLAR was established in 2013 as a strategic vehicle to expand the team’s involvement in other areas of the renewable energy business, providing turnkey solution services for residential, business, industrial and utility sector.
Within the same year, the company has successfully developed and launched the very first end user focused online web +DESIGN and +TRACK applications, which allow users to design the solar system by themselves, as well as to track their energy performance anytime anywhere.
At the same year, +SOLAR launched the Energy Trilogy concept which encompasses Energy Generation, Energy Efficiency and Energy Storage technology solutions roadmap. Since then, our engineering team has been relentlessly engaged in researching for the best solution to assist building owners to achieve an optimized way of consuming and generating energy.
In the same year, both +SOLAR and Leaf Energy obtained the ISO 9001:2008 Certified by TÜV SÜD Germany. In addition, +SOLAR has also soft launched the +SOLAR Academy, a CSR initiative designed to provide complimentary Green Technology Education to academic institutions in Malaysia.
Our actions gained increasing exposure and awareness, which has caught the attention from the media and we were subsequently interviewed by both BFM and Melody FM in the same year. Overall, a grand total of 20MWp solar projects were completed by end of the year since our inception.
With record setting milestones achieved in the past year, +SOLAR received numerous award recognition from the media, including
In the same year, +SOLAR established an investment subsidiary – Leaf Solar Sdn Bhd, which owns and manages our first megawatt solar project with 21 years of Power Purchase Agreement signed with TNB.
